The Tory leadership hopefuls went head-to-head on a special Sky News programme, the Battle for Number 10.

As reaction and analysis of the programme continues, Conservative Peer Lord Hayward told Sky News that the political momentum behind Liz Truss’ campaign has slowed, following the Sky News leadership special.

What's a Sunak?

erxjkdsqqs August 5, 2022 - 1:20 PM

Rishi is something else…I never saw a public speaker like him in my life. He's able to convince anybody about anything just like that

A night of debate and Rishi is in the lead. How amazing.

Alles sehr schön. Aber zuerst zusammen die Nummern 10 und 1. Eine empr.ONLINE Brünette und eine anderez Blondine. Es wäre unfair, wenn ich 4 wählen würde

Sunak makes Truss come over as wooden, robotic, reading a script, while he's more spontaneous.

Barry Peers August 5, 2022 - 1:34 PM

truss is a war monger leave the war mongering to the usa they are very good at this

Nothing will change, trust me. Fishy audience last night, nice try sky news.

Kok Loke Tan August 5, 2022 - 1:38 PM

No doubt sunak is a better speaker but Liz is more honest and many senior ministers have supported her hence hope she will win the contest..

ThePereubu1710 August 5, 2022 - 1:39 PM

Well done Sky for promoting your chosen winner -_-

Sly news at its best

Rishi Sunak is the man for the job

PurePlay August 5, 2022 - 1:41 PM

How anyone can look at the State of this country and even think of supporting the Tory party, I will never know.

Jimbo August 5, 2022 - 1:43 PM

Murdoch desperate for their man to win. But members simply don't want a Blue Ed Milliband

Vote Doris Johnson, it’ll be a laugh.

Fishy Rishi is not wanted as PM or in government. He can go back to socialising with his aristocrat chums on a full time basis. The PPE contracts scandal is unresolved.

Paula Charlesworth August 5, 2022 - 1:58 PM

Kay was harder on lizz than she was on rishi

Rishi was utterly brilliant. He is possibly the most gifted politician I've ever seen. He is the most capable person to restore faith in the political arena (as he promises to do) after the mendacious BoJo years. He really ought to be a shoo-in for Tory leader and Prime Minister but – and I say this with a heavy heart – I suspect his South Asian heritage will deter large numbers of the hypocritical Tory rank-and-file.

He's backing Rishi's pair of massive Suknackers 😍😘

siva Chandrasekaran August 5, 2022 - 2:04 PM

OMG Sunak promotion started by Sky news. Of course Sunak did better than Liz Truss.

Ron August 5, 2022 - 2:11 PM

What a pathetic show of democracy, feeding us these debates like we have a choice on either. Truth is many dont want either and would rather have a general election.

Dean Unknown August 5, 2022 - 2:12 PM

It's all going to Plan that's what we will own nothing and rent it and own NOTHING

Robin McAra August 5, 2022 - 2:19 PM

Rishi is like a dodgy car salesman, just an awful human being.

Nick August 5, 2022 - 2:20 PM

Ah yes a man with the title of Lord before his name is here to explain it all to us plebs.
